Here me and Matias Parmala engage in some friendly and relaxed free fencing after a session of (relatively strenuous) training, using ‘sideswords’, or what we should perhaps call Bolognese swords, or even play swords after ‘spade da gioco’. The video ends abruptly with me being disarmed and knee-stomped in the diaphragm. It remains unknown to me what malice I must have committed towards Matias to deserve such a manhandling.

It didn’t hurt, though.
